The very opposite of a Cheater, this is a villain who despite using villainous methods still has honorable traits. As such, they usually treat their foes and followers with respect and demonstrate some extent of mercy or fair play. They never resort cheating to win, they may avoid fighting people that are weaker, they may suppress their own power, and they may keep their end of a bargain that they promise to keep if they lose or if the hero does something they ask. Numerous times, these traits often result in the villain redeeming themselves. Many Honorable characters have a common theme of finding a "worthy opponent" and thus want the hero they fight to be strong or get stronger.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not add Pure Evil villains to this category, as villains that are Pure Evil are never presented in a positive way. Honor is a redeeming feature, and would present the villain in a positive way.
